Homicide Squad detectives today charged a 15-year-old South Yarra boy following the fatal stabbing of a man in South Yarra last week.

He was arrested in South Yarra this morning and interviewed.

Facing one count of murder, the teen faced a children’s court this afternoon and remanded in custody.

The charges follow an incident last Friday 18 September where a 40-year-old Prahran man was fatally stabbed while on Malvern Road.

Earlier this week, police appealed for the rider of a motorised scooter and the driver of a white van, who were both captured on CCTV on Malvern Road at the same time as the teen, to come forward.

The footage showed the scooter rider strike the teen after he stepped in front of it, while the white van drives past the teen and the victim during their altercation.

Police are still looking for those two people and appealing for them to come forward.
